One of the most amazing things we will experience is the moment when we feel as if we have arrived, only to find out that we have been here the entire time. Such an incredible sight it is to recognize a part of yourself that feels completely new and is somehow very old and familiar. I feel as if I am experiencing the shift from one journey travelled to another destination met and the entire time I feel as if I am in both places simultaneously. I can tell you that from a “mind” perspective I experience a chuckle each time I think about the timing of this shift being at the change of the year, especially since I am not one who believes in the “New Year, New You” philosophy. It feels as if the last week included an energy of experiencing that which you doubt as possible. Within this transition is also a realization of how we have grown into ourselves, although, some of us also have to move slowly into this new space. What this piece looks like is very different for each of us.
There is always something out of this world to experience the ways you are so conscious and unconscious in the many breaths you take from moment to moment. When you are in the unconscious energy, sensing the truth of you seems to feel like the real deal. As if all of the pieces make so much sense when they are put together to create some larger sense of validation to why you are who you are and how you have become who you are. It is the consciousness that comes in and sweeps the cobwebs from the mind’s pathway to the heart center. The deeper you breathe the heart, the more authentic your energy becomes. This is not to say that you do not exist authentically already, this is to say that you are allowing yourself permission to exist from an even greater depth of wisdom and love which propels you into life with the grace to handle even the most chaotic of circumstances.
With changes such as these, it can feel like an illusion of sorts to understand why this part of change feels so familiar. The feeling that this shift is not new, or that you were already at your destination before you started is because you are remembering. Your soul, or spirit as you may refer to it, is remembering what it is here to do in this lifetime. Sometimes in the process of remembering, it requires you to re-live certain circumstances so that the healing process can occur for you on all levels. Some people are working through the healing of generations of their ancestors. While this may seem like a burden to some, it is really a gift to experience. Imagine if you could, in some way, heal the hurts that the previous generations of your relatives and ancestors had experienced or heal the energetic ripples through time that effect future generations. Obviously there is no way to go back and physically change what has happened in the past, but there is a way to journey back to your experiences through meditation and other spiritually guided practices, which can help shift your existing relationship to those experiences. This opens the door to healing much farther back than we may even recognize in this life.
Now, these kinds of healing experiences have been happening for centuries and with each new life born into existence the experience changes. Notice for yourself and your journey, what you came here to work on and how that may shift the healing for your own past, present and future. Open yourself to recognizing that sometimes things and situations shift within your belief system, so much so that you actually change your beliefs and maybe even your mind. Let the light in so that the openness is filled with a goodness and authenticity that you do not doubt or discount. Know your heart and the love that you are here to experience and most importantly to offer.
Many blessings my friends. xoxo
